Giles W, 2020 years ago

On Saturday 8th July 2017, Heather gave a very memorable and moving concert at St Mary's Church, Whitkirk, entitled 'Scars upon My Heart'. Heather not only researched and compiled all the material for this concert she also composed all the music too. Written especially to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, Heather has set to music poetry written by women who lived at the time of the Great War. As well as hearing Heather's beautiful and original folk music, the concert was interspersed with the reading of a number of poignant and personal letters that had been written by women in Great Britain to their friends and loved ones fighting at the Front. This unique and original concert was very much enjoyed by all those attending. Giles Taylor Organist and Director of Music St Mary's Church, Whitkirk

We awarded first place to Heather Woodhead for several different reasons. First and probably the most important being that the performance of her three traditional folk songs was flawless, and the songs Heather chose were not easy. Throughout the performance you could have heard a pin drop, recognition of the spell her voice cast over the audience. A personal input from me was that I have seen Heather grow as a performer from a nervous emerging talent at one of the very first Acoustic Rotherham’s, to this current outstanding level of performance. Both Roy and I hope that this victory will really help to bring Heather to the front of Club Organisers minds as on the evidence of what we heard and saw on Saturday there are few who can perform traditional songs so well. So congratulations to Heather.
